Good morning, campers! The “Pi Day” sale may have come and gone, but Microsoft is still exploding with awesome laptop deals even we non-tech-billionaires can get woozy about.
Not everything in the sale is a great buy, but below are the models we recommend checking out. If this page takes more than 10 seconds to load, you should definitely consider upgrading to one of the below models.
Lenovo Z50-75 Signature Edition, $314 (SAVE $285)
The Lenovo Z50-75 Signature Edition features a 15.6-inch display, an AMD FX-7500 graphics card, 8GB of memory, and Windows 10 standard.
Because it’s one of Microsoft’s “Signature Edition” PCs, it also doesn’t come with any junkware, making it a doubly delicious deal at only $314.
Dell Inspiron 13 5378 Signature Edition, $616.71 (SAVE 282.29)
This handy little Dell option boasts a 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen, an Intel Core i7, 8GB of memory, and Windows 10 to boot. The fan is a bit loud on account of the powerful, fast i7 processor, but we absolutely adore these Inspiron 13 5378 models for their high quality and low price points.
This is another awesome “Signature Edition” option which you can get for $616.71.
Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series, $513.81 (SAVE $235.19)
This 15.6-inch option is great if you want something bigger with a little more power too. You’ll get an AMD A12 processor, a whopping 12GB of memory, and an AMD Radeon R7 graphics card.
This is a lot of laptop and decent specs for a little over $500. Just note it isn’t a “Signature Edition” model and will have some bloatware.
HP Pavilion x360 Convertible, $479 (SAVE $250)
This 15.6-inch, full-HD laptop from HP is a “convertible” model. That means it swings alllllll the way around on its hinge. That’s great if you want to use this as a laptop, a tablet, or a self-standing screen for watching Netflix or following recipes.
You’ll also be getting an Intel Core i5, 8GB of memory, and Windows 10 for only $479. Not too shabby.
ASUS ZenBook Flip Signature Edition, $499 (SAVE $250)
The crazy flexible ASUS Zenbook Flip is as almost more of a big tablet than a mid-size laptop. You get a 13.3-inch touchscreen, Intel Core m3 processor, and 8GB memory.
While not the most powerful of the bunch, it’s lightweight and capable of doing double duty with respectable specs for $499.
Alienware 15 Touch Signature Edition, $1,399 (SAVE $1,100)
If you’re looking to really invest (and are a big-time gamer or power user), getting over a thousand bucks off this Alienware 15 Signature Edition is the right move.
You’ll get a big 15.6-inch 4K rez touchscreen, an Intel Core i7, a huge 16GB of memory, and an NVIDIA graphics card for only $1,399.
Lenovo X1 Yoga Thinkpad Signature Edition 2-in-1, $2,199 (SAVE $500)
Last but definitely, definitely not least, this powerhouse Lenovo X1 Yoga Signature Edition for the really big spenders. We absolutely love the X1 Yoga platform, which is business-ready but powerful enough to handle anything you throw at it.
You get a 14-inch WQHD OLED touchscreen (drool), an Intel Core i7, 16GB of memory, and everyone’s favorite Thinkpad mouse nub for $2,199.
